What a great find! How many of you reading this remember the book and how pervasive it was way back in the sixties? Was there any school that did not have several copies in their school library. Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle was supposed to be the book that opened up the world of poetry for children. Maybe it did. Certainly it was a great little collection of poems.

Well this isn't the book - this is the record. On this LP Ellen Holly and Paul Hecht read 38 poems from the book. Both of them have wonderfully rich voices, and both of them bring each poem to life.

Now you can revisit Watermelon Pickle, or play it for your children. It's hard not to chuckle when Ms Holly reads "How to Eat a Poem" , and everyone must feel the poignant depth of "For a Dead Kitten".

The list of poets included is impressive, from the famous, like e e cummings, Phyllis McGinley, EzraPound, Dorothy Parker, William Carlos WIlliams, Langston Hughes and Theodore Roethke - to the less well-known but equally talented Robert Francis, Sydney King Russell, David McCord, Sara Henderson Hay, and Eleanor Averitt, to mention just a few.
